Winston's Wish
a charity for bereaved children

Support Services

The death of a parent or sibling is one of the most fundamental losses a child will ever face. At Winston’s Wish, we believe that bereaved children need support to make sense of death and rebuild their lives – and that is why we exist.

Winston’s Wish offers the widest range of practical support and guidance to children, families, professionals and anyone concerned about bereaved children. Our services give bereaved families the opportunity to talk about and make sense of what has happened, to meet with us and to meet others in a similar situation.



Our national Helpline offers support, information and guidance to anyone caring for or supporting a bereaved child or young person.
